So it has been over a week since the last post. Been very busy here in the Black Box working on a little bit of everything. The fact is that while blogging is great and all I still gotta get my hands on a bit of bread in order to feed the music-habit.
Yes the eternal job search is well under-way, and while it may seem endlessly unsuccessful I have set my sights on creating my own cash while my CV does the rounds. The fruit of my labour will be clear to see in the coming weeks but for the moment I am spending my days in front of the computer designing like I have never done before and getting my head around endless lines of html code and what not.
Who knows what will happen.
The sad fact remains though that I have way less time to devote to writing on this blog. I am going to try and return to the daily posts that I began back in January when I was equally busy. I am also aware that I have a whole podcast yet to release from the last Black Box show… that may take a bit more time but it will make it to you eventually.
I guess this is the harsh reality. When it comes down to it you gotta prioritise some things over others.
I’ll do my best to keep it up.
For the moment here is a little something from Muddy Waters’ “Electric Mud” album that was released through Chess Records back in 1968. An album that was not much loved (even by Waters himself.. it is rumoured) but has grown in time to reflect a truly psychedelic edge on the Blues revival of the 60s, marking a time of transition in music as artists like Hendrx were absorbing the lessons of the Blues masters and mixing it up with new acidic sounds… a beautiful thing in my book. Enjoy.
